Inspired by the gentle beauty of the English landscape, the celebrated writer H.E Bates and the much loved wildlife artist C.F Tunnicliffe produced an enchanting tribute to country life. With the deft, sure eye of master craftsmen, they portray the mellow stone of country towns, spray swept seaside promenades, strolls among sand dunes, Mr. Pimpkins the jobbing gardener, roach fishing at dawn, the art of pear growing, and much more to make a book that is lasting pleasure. Above all, The Happy Countryman was H.E Bates' testament to his own ideals about the countryside and his hopes and fears for its future.
